GoPro’s HERO5 & HERO6 have been understandably very popular, but now the new GoPro HERO joins the range at $AUD 299.95, which is 30% less than the HERO5. For the money you get a go-anywhere, capture-anything camera that makes it easy to share experiences that would be difficult to capture with a phone.
HERO features a 2-inch touch display, is waterproof to 30 feet and is extremely durable, making it perfect for kids, adventurous social sharers and travellers.
“HERO is a great first GoPro for people looking to share experiences beyond what a phone can capture,” says Meghan Laffey, GoPro’s SVP of Product. “HERO makes it easy to share ‘wow’ moments at a price that’s perfect for first-time users.”
Sharing cool experiences with HERO is a cinch. It offloads your photos and videos to the GoPro app which creates fun, shareable videos for you, automatically. No more fumbling with your SD card or plugging your camera into a computer. We’ll be roadtesting this feature as soon as it snows.

One great accessory to pick up is SHORTY shown here – the mini extension pole/tripod weighs virtually nothing, fits in your hand folded, but gives you a 22.7cm extension arm for hand held or as tripod up to same height, or use it just as a neat handgrip.
